Annibale Carracci (Italian pronunciation: [anˈniːbale karˈrattʃi]; November 3, 1560 – July 15, 1609) was an Italian painter and instructor, active in Bologna and innovative in Rome. Along bearing in mind his brother and cousin, Annibale was one of the progenitors, if not founders of a leading strand of the Baroque style, borrowing from styles from both north and south of their native city, and aspiring for a recompense to classical monumentality, but count a more essential dynamism. Painters working under Annibale at the gallery of the Palazzo Farnese would be terribly influential in Roman painting for decades.
